My Mums Recipe
As a child and well into the years after I got married, I absorbed as much as I could from my maternal grandmother regarding her cooking and recipes. I would gaze at her for hours, mesmerized by the effortless way she made ingredients come together. She would make barfee – a sweet Indian confection similar to fudge, with a balanced sweetness complimented by the creaminess of the ghee – that held it together. It was never overly sweet. Her rotis were the best I’ve had and, as a matter of fact, many folk lucky enough to be in her realm would vouch for that too. A hot ghee smeared roti, perfectly toasted on top to reveal a crispy layer against the pillowy softness of the bottom layer, begged to be eaten with her homemade mango jam.

Good to hear from you. I’ll try this recipe. I’ve been making most of the dishes you taught in the Com Ed class and enjoying them all. Toni
Hi Toni, So good to hear from you. I”m happy to hear you’re still making the recipes. I really miss teaching and students like you made teaching all the more better. Sorry it took so long to reply. For somer reason I couldn’t access my blog until today. Take care and looking to hearing from you. For the love of ghee, Shamim 🙂
